Is there a minimum age to take part in the National Three Peaks Challenge?

There is no minimum age requirement, but we generally require that participants who are under 18 are accompanied by a parent.

How's best to travel to Fort William?

Please see our travel to Fort William page for the range of options - recommended by train or flight to Glasgow or Inverness.

What time will we arrive in Chester afterwards?

We expect to arrive in Chester late morning, but we can sometimes be delays by traffic or weather. We suggest booking any train tickets without a fixed time if possible, or for 2pm onwards to be safe.

Can I bring my dog?

On our organised events, as we spend time in the minibus with other group members, dogs cannot attend — but, they're very welcome on our Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge and Surrey Three Peaks Challenge events.

How many people come on each event?

On our Open events we expect around 50 people on each date, and we travel in groups of around 10 walkers per minibus.

Can I leave belongings in the minibus, and bring an extra bag not to carry?

Yes! Please either use a soft bag that can tuck under your seat, or an airline carry-on size suitcase. You'll travel in the same minibus throughout.

Is it possible to do the Three Peaks in a weekend without taking time off work?

Just about, yes!

From London, we suggest flying to Glasgow (flight time 1 hour 15 minutes from London), then train to Fort William (last departure from Glasgow Queen Street is 6:23pm, at the time of writing in summer 2022). You'll be in Fort William soon after 10pm, ready to spend the night and meet us in town the following morning to start the challenge!

From Manchester, flight time to Inverness is 1 hour 20 minutes. The last CityLink bus from Inverness to Fort William departs at 8.15pm.

What do we get afterwards?

Certificates of achievement are included in our Open and Private events, and are handed out afterwards.

National Three Peaks Medals are also available online exclusively from the Three Peaks Shop.
